Helicopter Glamping: A Hotel Room Inside a Decommissioned Helicopter

Helicopter Glamping

I’m not really sure where this idea came from, but someone in Scotland had the bright idea to convert a decommissioned Royal Navy ZA127 Sea King helicopter into a one of a kind hotel room at Mains Farm in Stirling, Scotland. It’s called Helicopter Glamping, “glamping” being not a weird Scottish word for a hotel room as I originally thought, but instead a new trendy portmanteau that means glamorous camping.

The helicopter in Helicopter Glamping isn’t functional, unless you mean functional as a hotel room, in which case it is much more than adequately so. There’s sleeping room for a family of up to five in the tail, plus a cozy sitting area/lounge in the cockpit, and if you’re looking for more than that, I’d remind you that this hotel room is inside of a damn helicopter.

A night of Helicopter Glamping in Scotland will set you back about $195 a night, and you can book your stay and get more info at its official site right here.
